Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers which is employed to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP websites are dynamic and each time a website visitor opens a page, the script connects to a database in order to get some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with websites that display the same content all of the time, such actions result in needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the program code does not need to be parsed and compiled again and again, which in turn lowers the Internet site loading time. The module could be very useful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
